Sorcar is a procedural modeling node-based system which utilises Blender and its Python API to create a visual programming environment for artists and developers. Heavily inspired by Side-FX Houdini, it presents a node editor with a variety of modular nodes to make the modelling workflow easier and fast. Most of the nodes are blender internal operations (bpy.ops.mesh/object) which also makes it easier for frequent blender users to manipulate geometry. It helps the users to quickly create 3D models and control node parameters to generate limitless variations in a non-destructive manner. It also provides the users to view and edit mesh on any stage of the node network independently, with realtime updates.

sc_visual_programming

VISUAL PROGRAMMING
Don't like programming?


Construct geometries using custom algorithms, maths or generate patterns without writing a single line of code!

NON-DESTRUCTIVE WORKFLOW
Want to change cylinder vertices after bevel?


Edit node parameters at any point without the fear of losing mesh data. Also apply same procedural operations to different objects easily.

sc_non_destructive
sc_realtime_updates

REAL-TIME UPDATES
Quick as the wind...


Drive a parameter using current frame value (or manually change it) and see the mesh update in viewport.

ITERATE & RANDOMIZE
Need multiple extrusions of random amount?


Generate variations in mesh by using seed-controlled pseudorandom numbers. Use loops to handle repeatitive operations with same level of randomness.

sc_iterate_randomize
sc_automation

AUTOMATION
Modify, Save, Repeat...


Use frame number to drive seed value and batch export the meshes in different files.

240+ NODES
At your service!


A growing list of functions available as nodes (operators & scene settings) including custom inputs, selection & transform tools, modifiers and component level operators.

sc_nodes
  • Simplified node sockets with internal data conversion for the convenience of users.
  • Colour-coded nodes (preview, error, invalid inputs etc.) for easier debugging.
  • Multi-level heirarchy & auto-registration of classes for easy development of custom nodes in any category (existing or new).

and more...!
